Kellyanne Conway, former White House counselor to then-President Donald Trump, told Fox News Radio she seconded claims from Trump-era official Mike Pompeo that former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was trying to replace Mike Pence on the re-election ticket.
On “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” the host asked Conway about the claim purportedly made in Pompeo’s forthcoming book.
Kilmeade reported Haley “was scheming” with presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner to replace Pence ahead of the 2020 election.
“That is true that there were people trying to get rid of Mike Pence off the ticket beginning in, like, 2018 or so,” Conway said, calling the move a “fool’s errand” in part because Pence brought key political credentials among evangelicals and women to the Trump ticket.
